Free patterns
A while ago I was looking for a pattern and came across the downloads section on the Burda website! They have a selection of simple and free patterns to download, all you have to do is register on their site (which I did about 2 months ago and have had NO spam!!)

They have patterns for dresses, jackets trousers etc, they might not be the most fashionable styles, but they are easy to mod, and most importantly, free!!! (and legitimately free too!!)

I've decided that I'm never making trousers again ¬_¬ Too much annoyance for something that I could probably buy for cheaper than the material cost me >_< LOL

They don't, but they do have a bathing suit pattern:
http://www.burdastyle.com/patterns/show/3803

that could potentially be adapted. I'm trying to do that at the moment. It may or may not work XD But it was the closest thing I could find!

Oooh, hang on.

On the Burdastyle forums I found this link:
http://www.patternschool.com/

"Here you will find out everything you need to know about making close-fit stretch patterns for things like swimwear, catsuits and leotards. We do not cover non-stretch garments like skirts, trousers and blouses as they're covered perfectly well in literally thousands of books."

Jackpot!!
